Void Crest icon

Screaming into existence with the birth of the universe, the Void is a manifestation of the unknowable nothingness that lies beyond. It is a force of insatiable hunger, waiting through the eons until its masters, the mysterious Watchers, mark the final time of undoing.

To be a mortal touched by this power is to suffer an agonizing glimpse of eternal unreality, enough to shatter even the strongest mind. Denizens of the Void realm itself are construct-creatures, often of only limited sentience, but tasked with a singular purpose—to usher in total oblivion across Runeterra.

"The void is not so much a place ‒ it is a power, reaching out to consume all life."
Kai'Sa 0376
Kai'SaSquare Kai'Sa
A place between dimensions and between worlds. To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To most, however, it is called the Void. It is a timeless place inhabited by various seemingly intelligent entities who, for reasons beyond human understanding, have the desire to gain entrance to and vitiate the worlds outside their realm. These creatures are called 'Voidborn'. According to Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz, the Void is a very dark place, both he and Cho'GathSquare Cho'Gath said that the daylight in Runeterra is too strong for them.
Void Icathia

The lost city called Icathia seems to be connected to the Void, as some Voidborn are known to have appeared in the place and some mortals are known to have gained the Void's power in it. Mortals who encounter the power of the Void generally have one of two reactions:

  • Like MalzaharSquare Malzahar, the Prophet of the Void, their minds may be overwhelmed and they may become willing servants to the dark apocalyptic destinies they see emanating from the Abyss. On Runeterra, these individuals are referred to as 'the Cult of the Void'.
  • Like KassadinSquare Kassadin, the Void Walker, they may be horrified and shocked into an unyielding desire to lay down their lives to forestall the doom they see. On Runeterra, these individuals are referred to as 'The Preservers'.

Some historical evidence show that, in times long past, there were massive magical projects throughout Runeterra oriented toward creating a bulwark against the Void. These projects and their history, however, remain apocryphal.

Currently, MalzaharSquare Malzahar performs rituals with his followers to sacrifice humans to the Void. In one instance KassadinSquare Kassadin tried to stop him, however MalzaharSquare Malzahar managed to trick KassadinSquare Kassadin into sending his daughter Kai'SaSquare Kai'Sa into the Void.

  • It is implied that living beings that enter the void are corrupted and transformed into Voidborn creatures, as is the case with the Rift HeraldSquare Rift Herald being a mutated Rift ScuttlerSquare Rift Scuttler.
    • A contrary case is the return of Kai'SaSquare Kai'Sa, who managed to remain practically unaffected by surviving in a void symbiote suit.


Visions of The Void

Void An Unknowable Power

In the abyssal darkness, deep underground, it is believed that the first great Void creatures to walk the surface of Runeterra now lie, dormant and unseen. If that is true, then they have waited patiently through the millennia, and it must surely now be time for them to rise once more.

Void The Fall of Icathia

A great and terrible battle was fought against the Void before the walls of ancient Icathia. In the aftermath, the lands all around the damned city became deserted wastes, and its very existence was struck from the maps of Shurima. It was hoped, perhaps foolishly, that the horrors unleashed there would eventually be forgotten…

Void The Rupture

In the outskirts of Icathia lies the Rupture—evidence of the Void itself bursting forth from deep beneath the ground, in an age now lost to history. Though the bold and the curious alike have often sought to learn more, only the most foolhardy explorer would ever dare venture into the dark spaces beneath.

Void Salt The Earth

One of the few known ways to combat the Void is to starve it. With no organic or magical sustenance nearby, the Void’s material growth will slow, until it eventually falls into a dormant state.

Void The Voidborn

Though it has bred many of them, no two horrors of the Void are exactly the same. Their otherworldly forms are as varied as they are terrifying—yet all are driven by an insatiable hunger, with the eerie pulsing of their hearts driving them relentlessly onward.

Void Armored in Darkness

Some legends suggest that, when they first emerge into the Runeterran air, the Voidborn are generally pale, fibrous and flexible. As they age, sections of their form harden into a darker, shell-like chitin, which can become strong enough to turn aside almost any weapon.

Void The Touch of The Void

Over the centuries, many mortals from the world above have answered the Void’s call, or been dragged down against their will. There are those among them—few and far between—who have survived the encounter... though not a single one of them returned unchanged.

Voidling Emergence

Voidborn are shown to vary greatly in intelligence and development: Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz and Cho'GathSquare Cho'Gath are highly intelligent (In due time Kha'ZixSquare Kha'Zix may aswell, but requires to assimilate other organic creatures.), while Kog'MawSquare Kog'Maw is rather primitive (This may be due to fact that he is an infant) and Rek'SaiSquare Rek'Sai is primeval and non-sapient, more akin to a wild animal. As such there are also different hierarchies, Rek'SaiSquare Rek'Sai for example is the queen of her kind and feared by the other Voidborn. Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz is likely in the higher hierarchy however, as he is allowed and able to execute other Voidborn should they become problematic for him.

All known Voidborn (sans Rek'SaiSquare Rek'Sai) seem to have a hunger that they must satisfy:

  • Cho'GathSquare Cho'Gath revels in fear and mayhem and depravity.
  • Kha'ZixSquare Kha'Zix craves biological perfection.
  • Kog'MawSquare Kog'Maw simply wants food, albeit endlessly.
  • Rek'SaiSquare Rek'Sai hunts those who cross her domain relentlessly.
  • Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz seeks omniscience.

There currently exist two lesser Voidborn creatures who are summonable to the plane of Runeterra for a short time.

These lesser voidborn are both quadrupeds, with insectile legs that are similar in appearance. They are smaller in size in comparison to other voidborn, being around the size of a minion, implying that they may not be fully matured. It has been hinted that they are non-sapient, and possess no lead nor master; however, their demeanors can be (forcefully) lieged to those that summon them. These voidborn appear to be linked in some way to the champion who summoned them, being able to either increase their strength either directly from the summoners own strength (VoidlingSquare Voidling) or defense (VoidspawnSquare Voidspawn).

There are multiple species of voidborn with only two being known: the Xer'Sai and the Zz'Rot. The Xer'Sai run rampant across the Sai Desert, a vast wasteland in southern Shurima, with their queen Rek'Sai being the apex predator of the entire region. The Zz'Rot are diminutive quadrupeds with a volatile biology. They are also the only voidborn whose method of entry to Runeterra is known; their usage of portals. Presumably the remaining named voidborn: Cho'GathSquare Cho'Gath, Kog'MawSquare Kog'Maw, Kha'ZixSquare Kha'Zix, Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz and Baron NashorSquare Baron Nashor are also members of individual species.

The flesh of a voidborn is not edible for humans and decays very fast after their death.


The Void is a nightmarish dimension said to exist outside space and time, where terrifying living weapons were wrought to win an ancient and long-since ended war. No-one truly understands how the Void came into existence, but tales of its terrible denizens have wormed their way into the dream consciousness of almost every culture's legends, creation myths, and dark folktales. Those few scattered grimoires and madmen that dare speak of the Void at all speak of it as an infinite realm of unfettered creation, tortured landscapes of crazed organic machinery, magical weapon-looms and mountainous flesh-forges. None have yet ventured into the Void and lived, for mortals would almost certainly be consumed and woven into the endless process of creation.

In places where the mystical barriers between Runeterra and the Void have been worn thin, the air feels charged, and fantastical occurrences are the norm. Rivers run with vibrant colors, flowers bloom with incredible perfumes, and living beings experience psychedelic visions and surges in magical power. For a time, such places are wondrous and brimming with miracles, but soon the landscape is twisted into new and deadly forms, and if the Void is able to consume enough biomass to survive, it can grow and evolve into something ferocious and terrifying.


All Voidborn carry names said to be in Ancient Shuriman. A common naming convention amongst the voidborn is to have their unique name be combined with the last syllable of their species name, being separated by an apostrophe in the middle. (i.e. Rek'SaiSquare Rek'Sai's name, where "Rek" is her unique name, and "Sai" would be the last syllable of her species' name [Xer'Sai])
